Over the past few weeks in class we have been working on our lessons on careers that kids can pursue. I have also been using class time to help take apart computers and replace broken parts. This will be very helpful when we go to St. John because we will be able to reuse these computers that had been rendered useless. I love the task of fixing the computers because it is a break from researching and when the computer turns back on after replacing parts I feel so accomplished. It is also awesome because when you take the computers to St John and know that someone who wouldn’t have a computer now has one you fixed, it’s a great feeling. That is probably my favorite part of One Laptop Per Child and the feeling that sticks with me every time I think about the class. Working on lessons is of course helpful, but we do not see the kid’s reactions to the lessons because they are so far away. The satisfaction of their expressions is one that will stick with me.
